FAIRMONT, N.C.--A car crash killed two Robeson County teens and left three hospitalized Monday night.
Tyreke Addison, 18, and Nokolma Hunt, 18, were killed when their car ran off Highway 41 in Fairmont and struck a tree. Vickie Hunt is thankful she was able to spend time with her son and his four closest friends Monday, not knowing it would be the last time they would all be together.
"I got the chance to speak with all of them, because I told them, 'Boys I'm going to miss you all.' And they left here probably around 5 p.m. and from what I understand they were coming back from playing ball,” said mother of Nokolma Hunt Vickie Hunt,
Hunt and Addison were skilled athletes and graduated last month from Fairmont High School.
"They played and lived for Fairmont. They always wanted Fairmont to be the best and it showed on the field,” said athletic director Michael Baker.
Vickie Hunt described how her son first started playing sports at the age of 4 and played all the way through school. He then started playing flag football and continually showed his love for sports when he played basketball in high school.
"I didn't think he would do all three, I thought maybe he would just play baseball, but he enjoyed all three and football was his favorite,” said, father James Hunt.
Family, friends, and mentors said Addison and Hunt had a bond like no other.
"When you saw one, you saw the other. They were lifetime friends,” said Baker.
Now, a tightly knit community will come together and always remember two young men.
Three other teens were hurt in the accident. Alexander Gilchrist and Devont'e Govan are both listed in good condition at Southeastern Regional medical center. Darius McCallum is listed in fair condition at Duke University Medical Center.
